Got baby's dresser- How to organize???

So we finally got the matching dresser to go with the crib in the babys room yesterday (ill attach a pic). But now im in a dilema, i have no idea how to organize it! i know the smallest drawer ill prob put socks, and mits, and hats ,etc in it, and the door that opens under that i plan to put diapers and such. But when it comes to the actual clothes im at a loss. I was thinking or organzing them by size (0-3 months, 3-6, 6-9, etc), but i dont really want to do that, cause with different brands, they fit differently. Like one companys 3-6 months clothing may be the same size as another companys 0-3 months clothing. ugh idk what to do.. any ideas..?????

will you have a changing table? If so, you will probably want to put the diapers on or right next to it. It's very hard to try to grab a diaper while the squirmy baby tries to roll off the changing table.

Ok, if it was for my baby, here's what I'd do. That top drawer on the right side, socks, hats, booties. The one underneath would be for burp cloths, swaddling cloths, etc.
The first one on the left hand side would be for onesies and baby gowns.
The second one would be for pants, shirts, one piece outfit, etc.
The third would be for jammies.

I would just put the current size baby is wearing in the drawers. Then, i would have a bin for clothes in each subsequent size, with the next size on top. Those bins would stack in the closet or corner of the room.
The only exception to that is that newborn and 0-3 would both be in the drawers, since they only wear newborn for a little while.
And dresses, hanging up in the closet!

hope that helps!

We wont have a changing table, but the changing pad fits on top of the dresser, so its a dresser/changing table, and the diapers are going to be in the dresser. Thanks for the advice :D
